The anatomy certificate program is a two-semester, post-baccalaureate program. The program provides graduate-level education in three of the four human anatomy core courses - microanatomy, gross anatomy, embryology and neurobiology.

The program is applicable to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physician assistants, athletic trainers, health and physical education majors and others in allied health disciplines. The intensive course work requires a full-time commitment.

Admissions Requirements:

Applicants for admission are expected to meet the general requirements for admission to the Graduate School with regular or nondegree status. Students must complete microanatomy, gross anatomy and either embryology or neurobiology with a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above to earn a certificate.
